"Proactive.IT Appointments provided an 'A Star' experience during the securing of my current contract. I was consistently kept up to date with progress and felt that the entire experience was tailored to my needs. It is no wonder this agency views itself as 'Proactive' - it most certainly is!"

"Excellent people to work with, they know the market and their clients, but they also understand the contractor and his or her needs, approachable and informative. Way above the standards the majority of agents apply for interim contractors like myself. Highly recommended for both clients and contractors."

"As a die-hard contractor for many years it was a big decision to consider a permanent role but Sam and the Proactive team advised and supported me throughout the selection process but also left plenty of space for me to reach my own decision without any pressure. I have an excellent role now thanks to Proactive and recommend them to anyone seeking their next role."
